Homebuilding is inherently dangerous. From accidents with power tools to falls from ladders, scaffolds, and roofs, builders risk serious injury and even death. We try to promote safe work habits throughout this site, but what is safe for one person under certain circumstances may not be safe for you under different circumstances.
So don't try anything you learn about here or elsewhere unless you're certain that it is safe for you. If something about an operation doesn't feel right, don't do it. Look for another way.
